Senior architect Sam Daysh studied and worked in the UK prior to moving to Australia in 2013 and was promoted to associate at Luke Fry Architecture & Interior Design (LFAI) on 21 September 2022.
LFAI was founded eight years ago with the goal to design projects that foster a healthy, highly functional environment that creates a tailored experience connected to lifestyle and Daysh is the first associate nominated since the inception of the practice in 2014.
According to the practice, enriching interaction rather than segregation is integral to its design approach.
Creative director at LFAI Luke Fry says he is looking forward to working with Daysh as an associate.
“We are thrilled by the opportunities Sam’s promotion creates for himself and our studio,” says Fry.
“He is a talented architect, committed to the design of complex, high-end projects and an inspiring mentor to our architectural graduates, holding our practice in good stead for future growth.”
Daysh says he shares Fry’s excitement about the future.
“Working at LFAI has always given me the opportunity to collaborate with an amazing team to deliver great architecture that is unique to each site, brief and client,” he says.
“As a mentor to our younger staff, I can both utilise and enjoy teaching the skills that I have developed during my career.”
Daysh’s career spans over 10 years in the industry, five of these as a registered architect working in small to mid-sized commercial and boutique practices throughout Melbourne.
“My professional experience in Australia has spanned several sectors, scales and states, including commercial mixed-use buildings, hospitality, multi and single residential developments, aged care and childcare facilities,” he says.
Daysh has a keen interest in sustainability and architectural technology, along with a passion for elegant, robust design and design philosophies.
He is currently working on a “plethora of exciting luxury residential developments” including a new penthouse to the historic George Hotel in St Kilda, a contemporary mansion in Brighton and the “biggest” private chalet on Mount Buller.
